Children playing in a forest 

A nice and confidently painted scene of three children playing in the midst of a dark forest. Through clever use of colour and light and dark effects, Elié Servin creates a mysterious and fairytale-like scene in which all attention is drawn to the playing children.

Benezit cites this pupil of Drolling as an artist of great sincerity, without commercial preoccupation, whose works deserve to be sought after by connoisseurs.
